    Mine has stayed solid, I've put about 12 hours on it, including 4 runs between 20-40 MPH (depending on water conditions) for 18 miles each - basically from the Southern end of Torch Lake to the Northern point, where L's cottage is.)

    Surfing with the platform way under water is what did mine in today.

    I used smaller bolts, maybe that's why it didn't hold up.

    Ian's is holding tough so I may try to enlarge the holes a little and use a bigger bolt and see if I have better luck. If not I guess I'm only out a couple bucks in stainless hardware.

    How about taking a feeler gauge, measuring the gap from the top one the transom side between the boat bracket and your platform bracket, then getting that thickness of ss metal or aluminum then cutting it to proper width and length , putting a bend on the top end then inserting it on the water side between your platform bracket and boat bracket. when you want to remove just tap up on the bend of the piece of metal..........I think some one already has this........just use a feeler gauge to determine the thickness and length you need

    dan, you got any pics of the deformaty.
    Yes but it's a terrible shot, sorry. I tried to take it from the side you can see how the bolt pushed into the bracket quite a ways.
